Mitt Romney seems to be having an identity crisis. Moments before attacking President Obama for Obamacare, the national health insurance program that is virtually identical to what he implemented in Massachusetts, he told NBC in an interview something completely different.
“Don’t forget,” Romney said, “I got everybody in my state insured. One hundred percent of the kids in our state had health insurance. I don’t think there’s anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record.”
To the crowd however Romney said:
“I will repeal Obamacare and replace it with real health care reform,” Romney said at the rally. “You see, Obamacare is really Exhibit No. 1 of the president’s political philosophy, and that is that government knows better than people how to run your lives. It is a view that government should stand between you and your doctor. I don’t believe in a bigger and bigger government…I believe in freedom.”
This guy will say anything to save his failing campaign for president.
